FLYNN, BENJAMIN - A SAD ACCIDENT - Death of Mr. Benj. Flynn, at his Saw Mill, near Miami City, Thursday - An accident which resulted in the almost instant death to a well known and wealthy farmer of Elizabeth Township, Miami County, occurred at a saw mill, near Miami City last Thursday afternoon.  Mr. Benjamin Flynn, proprietor of the saw mill near McKendra Church, about two miles south of Miami City, while working at the mill was struck in the head by a piece of scantling, and his neck broken.  He was, we understand, engaged in pushing a log which was on the track before the saw when the scantling which he held caught somehow between the log and the machinery and swung around, striking him on the head with the above result.  Mr. Flynn's funeral will take place tomorrow.
